This is an absoloutely middle of the road mild chard. Color is typical honey, on the nose this is a light wine. There is a little bit of butteryness but not a lot and no creamyness. There is a bit of sweetness mixed in with a teeny tiny bit of tartness. The finish is light. This is not a bad wine at all. Little to dislike. I would give it an 87-88. This would easily be a food friendly wine. I paired it with pan fried seabass and it went well! Won’t be rushing out to buy more, I prefer bigger Chards.

ROBERTSON WINERY KINGS RIVER CHARDONNAY 2006 WO Robertson Limited Release TASTING NOTE: A very compelling nose of flowers fresh fruit and nuts leads on this distinctive Chard from Robertson. It has a complex flavor profile of toasted oak butterscotch and minerals as well as a light almost citric spin that balances the weight. An intriguing Chardonnay with class. Score – 89.
